Animated gif of the wreck of the Hydrabad on Waitarere Beach.

The Hydrabad was a 68m Scottish ship on it's way to South Australia that beached off Waitarere in a "furious hurricane' in 1878. The 35 people on board survived but the cargo vessel was left on the beach after four efforts to salvage it.

Recognised by Heritage New Zealand, the Hydrabad is now completely covered and marked with a single blue post in the dunes.
